Fall of Rome and the Yun-Kan Empire
In 395 A.D., the massive Yun-Kan Empire; based in Kazakhstan with an empire stretching from Bangladesh to Belgium; attacked Rome. The Yun-Kan conquers the Western half of the Roman Empire in 411; while the East is only Greece and Turkey. In 439, the Yun-Kan emperor is murdered and the Empire falls. Europe splits into Germania, Magnia (Italy and the Balkans), Europa (France and Spain), and Slavonia (Eastern Europe). Britain was never conquered by the Yun-Kan and became Celtica. The part of the Middle East that was occupied by Rome was not conquered but left the Byzantines; and Africa was overrun by Berbers.
Rise of Christianity
In 678, the Christian state of Hibernia formed a papal position in Dublin and appointed John Sucan, a bishop from Cork, as the Pope. The Hibernian a.k.a. Dublinist Church is formed. Soon, Hibernia had sent missionaries to Celtica and Europa on successful missions to convert them. In 697, Europa split up into Francia (Northern France and Belgium), Gallia (Southern France), Occitania (Provence), Iberia (Western Spain, Portugal, and Andalucia), and Hispania (Northern Spain). When Magnia broke apart, Italy converted into Catholic Christianity, set up its own papal position, and turned every nation formerly in Europa from being Hibernian to being Roman Catholic. Francia sent missionaries into the Westphalia region of Germania. When Henry of Westphalia became emperor of Germania, Germania became Catholic Christian. The Byzantines send successful Orthodox missionaries to the nations once part of Slavonia (It has broken up by now).
Celtica has conquered Hibernia. The nation of Magyaria (Hungary) is thriving. This is the Middle Ages. In 1171, Gallia and Francia are united through royal marriage and conquer Occitania. That same year, Turkey leaves the Byzantine Empire and divides into Ionia (West Turkey), Sinope (North Turkey), and Anatolia (Central and South Turkey). This, unfortunately, was too much for Byzantium. In 1255, the Trebizond province of Sinope secedes and becomes the Kingdom of Arviniat. In 1320, Livanium (Greece) declared independence and Byzantine empire Isaakios V commits suicide. The Byzantine Empire falls. In 1440 the Kingdom of Arviniat suddenly takes control of Turkey via annexation, bribery, and murder. The end of the Middle ages is marked at 1492, when Cristofo Colombo sails to America under Portugal.
Age of Discovery
In 1492, Cristofo Colombo set out for the West under the flag of Portugal. He landed in OTL Antigua, claimed it for Portugal, and founded a settlement called Sao Felipe. He claimed the rest of the Lesser Antillies in the next few years. In 1494, Colombo died in a shipwreck. Juan Pablo de Castanas took control of the mission and claimed OTL Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. In 1496, a French expedition landed in OTL Belem, Brazil, and founded Donutois. Meanwhile, Portugal was nipping away at OTL Venezuela. The French founded the town of St. Jean-Baptiste in OTL Rio de Janeiro. Many more French towns are founded in between Donutois and St. Jean Baptiste and it all becomes the colony of Brasilie. In 1543, where we are by now, the English settle in the town of New Southampton, OTL New Jersey near NYC, and form the colony of Emerald Coast. Portugal gets all the rest of the Caribbean by 1543. Spain manages to settle Mexico. The English colony of Emerald Coast expands.
Europe in Turmoil
Anglia had conquered Celtica a long time ago. Germania is still strong and has never broken up. A man named Marten Lutter has published 100 theses about the Catholic Church. Germania is torn apart between Catholics and "Protestants". In the East, Muscovy grows stronger. Britain (the union of Anglia and Celtica) has Hibernians, Catholics, and Protestants in it. So does France. Arviniat is ruling Syria, Egypt, and Israel. The Magyar king dies without an heir. The 3 churches (Hibernian, Catholic, and Protestant) declare a crusade against each other. Europe is plunged into conflict for 7 years. Portugal and Spain fight over the New World with no real changes at the end.
Spain attacked Morocco successfully and added it to Spanish territory, followed by Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania, and Mali. The Dutch annexed the area from Senegal to Cote de Ivoire, and French Africa stretched from Libya to Ghana. Britain grabbed everything from South Africa to Zaire and Kenya, and Portugal had its African colony stretch from Cameroon to Somalia and up into Egypt. The year is 1690.
The New World
Britain expands the Emerald Coast past the Great Lakes and into the Great Plains, and into Ontario and Quebec. Russia controls Alyeska, Greenland, Iceland, Siberia, Finland, Eastern Europe, and the Faeroe Islands. The French Pacific stretches from British Columbia to Eureka, CA. Portugal and the Netherlands share a colony from Eureka to San Diego. The Dutch rule the Andes and Portugal has the Caribbean and a mainland colony stretching from Ecuador to Suriname. Spain rules Mexico and Central America.
United Republics of the Emerald Coast
Britain begins massively taxing the colonists in the Emerald Coast. A resistance is formed. Battles start and on June 4, 1766, the United Republics of the Emerald Coast is formed. The Emeraldian army drives out the British and is officially recognized. It expands into the Plains and purchases the Dutch-Portuguese Pacific. It conquers North Mexico (Texas) from Spain.
Independence in America
The independence of the Emerald Coast inspired many nations to rise up. Brasilie gained its independence from France in 1810. Nuevo Espana (Mexico and Central America) gained its independence in 1815. Matabia (Ecuador to Suriname, including chunks of Brazil and Peru) gained its independence from Portugal in 1820. Alyeska gained its independence in 1824. Canada was ceded to Britain.
Fall of Arviniat
Arviniat ruled the area from Turkey to Yemen and stretched into Mesopotamia. Then Maladric the Cruel was crowned King in 1846. He began massively taxing the population and terminating his enemies. In 1859, Maladric was assassinated and the nations of Mesopotamia, Ionia (Western Turkey), Syria, Anatolia, Kantonia (Coastal Israel), Judaea (Inland Israel), and Kurdistan all gained independence and Arvinite territory in OTL Saudi Arabia and Yemen joined the kingdom of Arabia.
In 1804, Austria, Magyaria, and several surrounding states "joined" to form Austria-Hungary. In 1867,the Confederation of Southwest Tribes (Mainly in Arizona and New Mexico) became a dependency of the U.R.E.C. Two years later, the Commonwealth of Former Arvinite Nations was formed. In 1907, Anatolia and Ionia joined together, conquered Arviniat, and became the Republic of Turkiye.
International War I
In 1914, Serbian nationalists assassinate the Austrian Archduke. Austria declares war on Serbia. Serbia is allied with Russia, Russia is allied with Britain and France, and Austria is allied with Germany. There are two main fronts: The Western (in France and the Rhine) and the Eastern (Russia/Poland). The sinking of the Balanarcia motivates the U.R.E.C. to go to war. The U.R.E.C., Britain, France, Russia, and Serbia win. *Note* There is no treaty related to the Treaty of Versailles in this timeline, but something similar to the League of Nations is formed. It is called the International Coalition.
